For the last 5 years, I have been finding ways to create more inclusive spaces for people with marginalizing experiences to receive personalized care.
In my first year as a massage therapist, I designed and facilitated a training to the staff on gender inclusivity, and meeting the needs of clients who bind in particular with a "binding wellness massage offering".
In my second year as a massage therapist, I took the leap to full-time self-employment under the name Triangle Wellness Collective, so that I could offer a massage experience where I am able to offer a personalized healing environment to clients of any size, gender, or neurotype. I also started the Help the Helpers Program, where I grant and individual donation supported massage services to community organizers working towards trans liberation.
I have also been involved in the community in several other ways, such as through my own community organizing through my performance persona Simon Saize, serving as a helpline volunteer, Somatic Healing Coordinator, and STARLING Healer through St. Louis Queer+ Support Helpline.

I studied massage at Midwest Institute. I use various techniques such as swedish massage, deep tissue, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, hot stone massage, lymphatic drainage, and reflexology.
In addition to massage, I have expanded my knowledge as a wellness practitioner through the study of reiki, guided meditation, and sound healing.
I see people of all different kinds in my practice. I believe that that everyone deserves to be treated with kindness and compassion.
